$0 C = 32 F$ and -10 degrees Celcius is 14 degrees Fahrenheit

#### Explanation:

The conversion:

$T \left(F\right) = T \left(C\right) \times 1.8 + 32$

-10 degrees C is therefore

$T \left(F\right) = - 10 \times 1.8 + 32$

$T \left(F\right) = - 18 + 32 = 14$

-10 degrees Celcius is 14 degrees Fahrenheir.
